    There might be something to that. I know some women who love the idea of being dominated by men, but I expect they'd find the reality of Sharia, especially the more drastic forms practiced by ISIS, to be more than they bargained for.

    Yeah, I seriously doubt it's a matter of masochistic tendencies and desires. That seems to usually be something which is stumbled into at a subconscious level, and is much more personal in nature, than ideological.

    Some Muslims are finally learning what Islam really teaches, after all, a fundamentalist believes the original/literal meaning of their holy book, ergo, they are acting like the Muslims Mohammad intended them to be. In a battle between Western education and lifestyle and Islam, Mohammad wins.

    I am always constantly surprised when other people are surprised that more and more, many Muslims are looking at what Mohammad really demands from his followers and acting upon it rather than being Clayton Muslims.

    I'm probably wasting my time replying to you as you have already stated publically that you hate Muslims so i doubt very much you really give a crap anyway....

    Still, for the benefit of those who are actually interested in what the wider Muslim Community are doing to address extremism i'll use the most recent hostage situation at the hands of an extremist in Sydney recently. Australia’s most senior Muslim cleric, the Grand Mufti, joined Muslim community leaders in condemning the siege. The President of the Supreme Islamic Shia Council of Australia even warned Federal Police about Monis back in 2008.

    "The guy was a total outcast," said Australian Iranian man Yavar Tayebi. "No one in our community, none of the Iranian Shiites, wanted a bar of him."

    "You take one look and think, he is an idiot," said Sheik Mousselmani, President of the Supreme Islamic Shia Council of Australia, who warned Federal Police about Monis in 2008. "Nothing about him added up."
    Sydney’s chief Islamic *funeral director declared no Muslim funeral home would accept the body of Monis and suggested authorities should just dump his corpse at sea or “chuck him in the bloody ****house”.
    Then guess what happened? They were criticised by some for that. If they had taken care of the body it would be front page news with claims that they obviously supported him. When they didn't they still copped grief. Damned if you do and damned if you don't with the bigots, nothing will ever please them.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    What is going down here?

    Well it's a magnificent day, the sun is shining, the beaches are magnificent and it's Australia Day tomorrow. Most Australians are just doing their best to get on with their lives and living it. We understand that extremism is a threat, afterall 2002 still weighs heavily in many of our minds.

    We're not unique in that we do have stupid and vulnerable people living her too.

    Vulnerable people are easy targets. There are examples of this everywhere. IS take advantage of that too, just like many others - look at Cults and how they recruit with their idiotic brainwashing.

    Prison romances are another example of vulnerable people doing stupid things. Sheila Isenberg wrote an interesting book called "Women Who Love Men Who Kill". It examines the phenomenon of females who enter relationships with convicts who are already behind bars, some who are on death row and many who will never be released. There are even dedicated websites out there where incarcerated men and women seeking relationships can encourage others to send them letters etc and build a relationship that way.

    Actions speak louder than words. Ever heard that before?

    The examples of lip service you posted still doesn't explain why Muslims from Australia would join ISIS.

    The apologists are so gullible, they'll fall for anything. They're nothing more than useful idiots for the jihadists.
